What Do You Know About Combatting COVID-19? An Interactive Program

In mid-March California became the first state to mandate sheltering in place to fight the coronavirus. Since then we’ve been bombarded with information about masks, social distancing, quarantining and infection risks. Some of that information has changed over time, some has stayed constant, and much of what we didn’t understand in March remains a mystery. How much do you know about how to protect yourself and others from COVID-19?

You can find out through this interactive quiz-based program that will use anonymous polling to test your knowledge and compare it to the rest of the audience’s. Infectious disease expert and clinical professor emeritus at UC Berkeley Dr. John Swartzberg returns to The Commonwealth Club—exactly 6 months after his first appearance at the Club to discuss COVID-19—to provide answers to the most common questions about COVID-19 transmission. Come ready to test your understanding of how the virus spreads, its symptoms and health impact, how to avoid infection, what to do if you get sick and more.

This session will challenge your thinking and leave you with a clear sense of what you can do to stay healthy.
